Sean Bean returns as the swashbuckling soldier Richard Sharpe in
this double-bill of the ITV drama based on the popular characters
created by Bernard Cornwell. In 'Sharpe's Challenge' it's 1817, two
years after the final defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo, and the Duke
of Wellington (Hugh Fraser) dispatches Sharpe to India to rescue a
general's daughter who has been captured by an Indian warlord. With
the loyal Sergeant Harper (Daragh O'Malley) at his side, Sharpe
travels deep into enemy territory, searching for the kidnapped girl
while at the same time trying to avoid the attentions of the
beautiful - but deadly - Indian princess Madhuvanthi (Padma
Lakshmi). In 'Sharpe's Peril', Sharpe (Bean) and Harper (O'Malley)
are travelling through bandit country on their way to Madras when
they come across a run-down army unit fearful of attack. When the
dreaded onslaught finally happens, Sharpe is called on to take
control of the situation and lead the survivors to safety.
